Who’s Producing Fast Young Male Skiers?

A quick follow up to my previous post on the same topic for women. Swap Germany for Russia, and otherwise the answer is largely unchanged:

Once again, this is the number of skiers born since 1988 who’s best FIS points results last season averaged better than 50 FIS points. I used a more strict cutoff with the men, since their FIS points tend to run lower than the women. As before, sprinting is a bit less lopsided. I was really surprised by the large number of young German men, many of whom I’m unfamiliar with.

Of course, FIS points are an admittedly crude measure, so perhaps this is overestimating things.

    I think the fact there are so many Germans is slightly due to what i commented on your last post. The Germans race OPA and get good points. However on the flip side of this, italy and the swiss did not fair so well, neither did Austria. All nations you would have thought to benefit. So maybe my theory is complete bull.
